Ok so...I see a lot of things about demon barb pk, bashing against sage barbs, but I have a sage barb and it's somewhat hard to find any tips other than "your damage will suck in 1v1 don't do it"-I've killed r8 toons in 1v1 and I'm sage and level 147. I am a hybrid build (enough dex to use claws and enough strength to use poleaxe/polehammer, with the rest dumped into vit, and was wondering if any good sage or demon barbs would share pk advice for a sage barb>other classes are welcome to comment as well .  :rolleyes: Ijs...I've walked into a full Diablo squad and used the flyer drop skill to ground the cleric and walked away without dying...so no I'm not going to switch demon if you all think I should. tyvm

I was a Sage barb for some time. It's useless at anything apart from tanking.

If you want to PK, switch to Demon, otherwise your gameplay will be worse...

Thanks for the tip Harold...but I do just fine 1v1. Instead of shooting down sage, it'd be nice if u could give a tip or two about what u did in pk as a sage skill-wise.

And in regards to switching demon; I am probably going to make a trial barb and make him demon to test the difference

hes telling you the truth, sure sage barb can be annoying and knockdown to. But the only thing it excels at is tanking.
demon is better for everything else then tanking, you even say you use claws but your not demon? 

also dex/str req for weapons and rest vit is a horrible build. best to go as if you really want to remain sage is just dex/str req for gear (no claw) and go full vit. go full tank build and pull cata in TW or CTF. this is what sage barbs excel at. otherwise just go demon for more fun.

also if you don't want to take any advice, don't ask for any.
Lol i fak you

 :)) haha thanks man :P I 1v1 quite a bit too and the only classes I find really hard not to die against are mages. Presuming i need better mdef vs them. I tend to spam mighty swing>penetrate armor>onslaught if they try to kite then the anti-mvmt debuff and catch up>mighty swing again and DPH..is that a decent combo or is there something else I could do? It gets somewhat predictable and many 1v1s end in draws because they're taking forever  :(

as demon you either go:
84 dex and full str
420 dex and full str (claw/bow)
hybrid build (for mass)
your current build is no dmg and semi tank.
also calling other people nabs (meaning noobs, meaning new people) while your level 147 and asking for help on a public forum might look a bit weird.
